K: Pride of Britain Hotels has reached its self-imposed limit of 50 hotels with the introduction of The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath into its collection of luxury independently-owned hotels.
It is the first time such a limit has been reached in Pride of Britain Hotels’ 37-year history.
The AA-five red star, Georgian architecture property enjoys a privileged position in Royal Crescent, just a short walk from the historic centre of Bath. Each of the 45 individually-designed bedrooms and suites features views of either Royal Crescent lawns or the hotel’s gardens.
Located in the grounds, The Garden Villa is a private residence with two luxury suites, two deluxe rooms and a private south-facing walled garden.
The three-AA Rosette Dower House Restaurant, overseen by executive head chef David Campbell, has garden views and offers al fresco dining throughout the summer months. The restaurant also serves an innovative tasting menu alongside more traditional à la carte options.
The Spa & Bath House, located in the hotel’s extensive grounds, features a 12-metre heated relaxation pool, vitality pool with massage jets, Himalayan salt-infused sauna, herbal steam inhalation room and a fitness studio.
In addition, there are six treatment rooms, offering a range of rejuvenating therapies by Elemental Herbology, as well as manicures and pedicures by Jessica Nails. Relaxation continues outside in the Taittinger Spa Garden, which offers dishes such as gazpacho, a superfood salad and afternoon tea.
A diverse collection of artwork adorns the hotel and its one-acre gardens, created by a mix of world-renowned artists and local artisans.
Meanwhile, wedding ceremonies can be hosted in The Wedding Garden, separated from the main grounds by honeysuckle and rose-covered stone walls. Exclusive hire of the property in its entirety is also possible.
General manager Jonathan Stapleton said: “We are so pleased to be joining such a well-established and respected brand, which represents some of the most prestigious properties in the UK.”
